The new Corona variant has not yet appeared in Germany. But according to the WHO, there are already proven cases in Denmark, the Netherlands and Australia. The new virus is also being discovered in Italy – the affected patient had returned from Great Britain in the past few days. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called on its European member states to tighten their corona measures in view of a new variant of the coronavirus in Great Britain. „In Europe, where transmission is high and widespread, countries need to step up their control and preventive measures,“ said a spokeswoman for WHO Europe. Outside the UK, eleven cases of the virus mutation have so far been reported, which is said to be significantly more contagious than the previous virus – nine in Denmark and one each in the Netherlands and Australia. Italy is now also reporting a case with the new Corona variant. The Ministry of Health of the southern European country announced that the mutation had been detected in a patient. The patient and another person had returned from Great Britain in the past few days and landed in Rome by plane. The patient is now in quarantine.

According to the chief virologist at the Berlin Charité, Christian Drosten, the variant has not yet appeared in Germany. „It has not yet been proven in Germany, but of course we take the reports from Great Britain, from the United Kingdom, very seriously,“ said Health Minister Jens Spahn in the ARD „report from Berlin“. „The significantly faster transferability, as it is assumed in this case, would of course change a lot and therefore it is important to prevent the entry to Germany, to continental Europe.“ Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, Austria and Ireland have cut their flight connections with Great Britain or announced this. Belgium cut all traffic connections. France is also stopping all passenger traffic from Great Britain for 48 hours due to a new variant.

According to the virologist Julian Tang from the British University of Leicester, the virus variant with the N501Y mutation appeared sporadically a few months ago, namely in April in Brazil, in June and July in Australia and in July in the USA. The virus variant is currently causing a massive increase in corona infections in southern England and the British capital London. According to initial findings by British scientists, a recently discovered variant of the virus is up to 70 percent more contagious than the previously known form. Prime Minister Boris Johnson stressed on Saturday that there was no evidence that vaccines against the mutation were less effective.

Since its first appearance in mid-September in London or the southeastern county of Kent, this variant has meanwhile developed into the „dominant“ form of Sars-Cov-2, explained the top scientific advisor to the British government, Patrick Vallance. He attributed the „very high increase“ in hospital admissions of Covid 19 patients in December to this development. Because of the new variant of the corona virus, the German EU Council Presidency is calling an emergency meeting with representatives of other member states for Monday. Berlin is calling together national experts within the framework of the crisis reaction mechanism of the international community (IPCR), as a spokesman for the German Council Presidency announced.
